Here is a pre-1972 Standard (Indiana) torch & oval, it was put in about 6 or 7 years ago.
Looks like an old expressway or freeway size sign.
Then there's the up to date Amoco, but the pole hasn't been painted white.
Plus the trim on the building (out of shot) is BP green & yellow.
Little Store location, State Hwy. 33 at Doddridge Ave., Cloquet, Minnesota

Three views of a sign at Leach's Amoco in the 9500 block of Manchester in Rock Hill, MO, a suburb of St. Louis. Taken by Rich Piehl, Jan. 29, 2003. Rich commented that the sign was there partially for a novelty, but the station appeared to be one that could have existed when the Standard sign was current. Maybe the owner was hanging onto a bit of the heritage of the station.

Bill Heger adds:
The Amoco in Rock Hill, MO which you added to your site is located just up the street from me. The station is over 50 years old and has been remodeled at least three times in its history. At one time it had the crown topped pumps. It has service bays on two levels in front and behind the station. It also has two full service islands. The owner recently passed away but his wife is carrying on. The station is loaded with memorablia including a Red Crown lamp in the station office. The station is the real McCoy.
